Kirby Muxloe Castle, Leicestershire

I had seen photos of moated Kirby Muxloe Castle before, and I was determined to photograph it. I saw that it was going to be a sunny morning so I convinced my wife she'd like a day out. It took us about 90 minutes to drive to the castle from our home in Gloucestershire, and oh, my, what a gorgeous sight it was in the morning sunshine!I walked around and around the moat, taking dozens of photos from all angles, but this is my favourite.
